That's GOT to be the MOST DISGUSTING instance of child neglect and human depravity I've read in some time!

Tanya and Justin Dykas deserve a life sentence behind bars and then some ! Thankfully the children no longer must be subjected to this sick psycho abuse. I hope in time these precious children, so young 2, 5, 7, 10 will be able to forget ! May each one be Blessed with compassionate love and everything they need for a happy life.
Thank you Lone Wolf.

The both of them should be neutered, they don't deserve to have children. I hope they rot like the food they had. Prayer and blessings to the children, may they receive all the love they need to forget.

This doesn't even phase me! Why?
For as long as I've been an adult stories like this have been
& will always be until we learn not everyone is meant to be
parents just because they have procreational body parts!!!!!

These are the kind of so called scum to spit out babies like
rats, rabbits & roaches with no thought at all.

This kind of story clearly justifies having in place a law of
mandantory parenting classes, mandantory Child Protective
services heavily involved.
The world is very much overpopulated with leaches like this.
They suck off every welfare agency known to man. Their
parental intelligence is zero.

Best solution is a sterilize them both. And, I didn't even read
this story. What for? I've read it a hundred times before. And
tomorrow or the next day there will be another story just like
it spewing from some news reporters mouth the awfulness of
it all.

When developed countries finally learn the hard lesson of what
China is now doing with the one child per family law just maybe
it will dawn on people like this children to be loved & cared for.

I would only say these children do not stand a chance. How sad. We have all these people trying to get the babies from Haiti (who I know are depserate) bbut the we are going to offer America's children is endless to disruption to foster home after foster home. And then, God forbid they go back to parents. Hard to know which is worse for the kids. They needs all of our prayers. And the parents should lose all rights to reproduction!!

It's mental illness coupled with a system that's apparently incapable of tracking and protecting kids from this kind of insanity.

Kristianna......Very good point about the Haitian children.
The children here in America need all we can give them.

Have any of you ever been to see the children living in
the Appalachian Mountain states? Do you know or are
aware of their living conditions?
The Haitian government has received billions(yes, billions
over the yeaes) in aid for their poor, for their children only
to see massive amounts of it fall into the hands of corrupt
officials. Millions & millions have been spent on improving
the lives of children in the so called ghettos of America only
to have many skim monies from the program for their own
personal use.

This government of ours has forgotten much about the poor
who are not included in a minority group & I suspect this
looney mother learned her parental ways from her mother
and the socioeconomic group her entire family came from.

Once you go to Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, S. Carolina,
Lousianna, Missisippi.......All those areas plus many more you
would see thousands of mother just like this one who have no
notion of what real positive parenting is.
And, how do I know all this?........My one grandmother who
was a dear woman raised eight kids in the hills of W. Virginia
on damn near nothing. I was there, I remember what it was like!

This is so sad, and that this could have gone on so long without being picked up on.

Thank God these children have been rescued!! These parents should not be around children ever again. Gosh, just to think a 2 year old was wandering around by itself is horrifying. Knowing how many pedophilles are out there in this world. These 2 aren't humans they are monsters. I wouldn't doubt it if they were doing drugs too. Druggies sleep for days if doing meth. Well, many other drugs too. I have called social services on monsters just like these 2. May God bless and keep these children safe and healthy. Poor little children to be in such a nasty place.

To add to my last comment.
My grandmother in W. Virginia had a shack
literally in the hollers in them hills. And gram kept
her shack neat as a pin. Gram had a wood burning
stove. And, those hills & mountains fed my aunts
and uncles with rabbits & squirrels.
My uncles had rifles all over the place & never did
they shoot a human. My uncles went out in the
mornings & brought home rabbits/squirrels for
gram to cook up for dinner. Gram made bisquits
and white gravy & mashed potatoes.

There were no marches for her sad situation
or her cause. There were no boatload/truckload
of food being delivered to her door. There were
no soup kitchens or community food bank,
much less than anything like food stamps or card.

Grandpa was a coal miner & he'd come home
black as coal..................
Probably what I remember best we were not told
nor was it ever implied they were raggedy ass
poor. I personally have wonderful memories being
there playing tamong the trees & making mud pies.

And most all there was no marches going on
from her shack all the way to Washington
for her cause or plight................

Plant & protect trees for life.................

Good Lord! Who does that to a child but Morons. It is a new religion these days and it is trendy to be ignorant and moronic. Look at what society has come to. And we like to believe that we are better than the other animal species. They clean theirs.

How come the people that deserve the blessing of children the least have no problem spitting them out!?!

These are the kinds of people who should NEVER have children! How low do you have to be to treat your child that way??? I really hope that these children are adopted out and never have to deal with this again. I feel for them.
